Children's Defense Fund-New York
The Mission of the Children's Defense Fund is to Leave No Child Behind and to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life. CDF provides a strong, effective voice for all the children of America who cannot vote, lobby, or speak for themselves. We pay particular attention to the needs of the poor and minority children and those with disabilities. In 1992, CDF established an office in New York City. The Children's Defense Fund, founded by Marian Wright Edelman in 1973, is a private, nonprofit organization supported by foundations, corporations and individual donations.
